Ep 10: The Resurgence of Adjustable-Rate Mortgages

With inventory still low, the market is still rough out there for buyers. At the same time, interest rates are rising with inflation proving to be a bigger issue than anticipated. On today’s episode, we are going to discuss a CBS article that relates to some of these issues. With rising interest rates are borrowers returning to adjustable-rate mortgages, a staple of the 2008 housing market crash?

We’ve certainly been asked about these mortgages more recently as people try to maintain the interest rates we saw 6 months ago.
